The other is Dylan Hears A Who, a project featuring the work of Dr. Seuss as performed by Bob Dylan. It is so freaking spot-on I can't believe Dylan didn't do it himself: Oh, The Thinks You Can Think mp3 Green Eggs and Ham mp3

I don't usually list new music blogs, but Fluxblog gave FMU a massive marathon shout-out this week, so return the favor and check out some of their recent shares - an underground Wu Tang remix, a Sweaty Wet dance tune, or some nicely cheery new synthpop. There's stuff to read as well, from this informed reply to CSS hatas, to an interview with Love Is A Mix Tape author Rob Sheffield.
Oh, I have also got to thank Flux for turning me on to this clip of Tracy Morgan on an El Paso morning show. Unlike other celeb morning show freak-outs (mp3) this one is supposed to be bizarre comedy (dear YouTube poster, Morgan is NOT wasted), and for a change the host takes it all in stride.
Also showing the FMU love this week was Said The Gramaphone, another new music blog who went so far as to re-post Tom Scharpling's typically over-the-top plea for pledges. My favorite post so far this month has been this version of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot (mp3) from Icelandic mens' choir Fóstbræður.
Who says that every mp3 blog has to be about music? Crud Crud's own Scott Soriano has started a side project called Gibble Gabble, which features all spoken word records - starting with an album of Edward Gorey poems read by Tammy Grimes (like this Gashlycrumb Tinies mp3), the expressive performance of Superstar Dan Theman, and some gorgeously sensual Spanish language poetry. Meanwhile, over on Crud Crud, he shares the great lost glam record of Lewis Furey, who reminds me of a rather fey Harry Nilsson. That is a good thing.
More mp3 finds after the jump.
I'm going to spend St. Patty's Day sitting around the house, drinking alone, and listening to this vintage Pogues concert from Boston, 1987.

From Quebec, a student's audiotape final project on the work of the Doors. Done last minute, which means some incoherent babbling with the Doors playing in the background. A++
